Domino’s partners with fire protection association, fire department to raise awareness
SALISBURY — The local Domino’s Pizza is partnering with the Salisbury Fire Department to raise awareness about fire protection and surprise a lucky resident with a free pizza.
The restaurant, located at 1601 W. Innes St., and the National Fire Protection Association are teaming up with the Fire Department to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7-13.
At 1 p.m. Oct. 9, anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza may be randomly selected and surprised when the pizza arrives aboard a fire engine.
If the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza will be free. If the smoke alarms are not working, firefighters will install functioning alarms or replace the batteries.
“Fire safety is extremely important,” said Osman Qasim, the Domino’s franchise owner. “We’re excited to partner with the NFPA and Salisbury Fire Department for a program that not only promotes the safety of our friends and neighbors but rewards those who make fire safety a priority.”
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.”
“Today’s home fires burn faster than ever,” said Kimberly Boling, fire life safety educator at the Fire Department. “From the time the smoke alarm sounds, you may have less than two minutes to escape a home fire safely. That’s why this year’s campaign theme is so important. Having an escape plan as well as fully functioning smoke alarms are essential to safely escaping a home fire.”
Customers can call Domino’s in Salisbury at 704-636-1111 to place an order and be eligible for the fire engine delivery.
